On the plus side though, this means that we can have a walk through of the house this weekend (hopefully) and have the seller show us where the important knobs and levers and buttons are. The plan is to do this and hopefully take a few pictures and measurements of the place so that I can show folks what it looks like (finally).
This whole thing is starting to feel a little bit anti-climatic. Its such a long and drawn out process and there are so many random little things to deal with that I don't know when I'll really really feel like I'm done. Maybe once I've moved all my stuff and the critters and we're all in one place again. At least the cats will enjoy living in Box City again for a while (why is it that cats love exploring boxes so much?). I'm also planning on getting an aquarium setup soon so that the kitties have a buffet.... kidding. Actually its kitty TV.... non-interactive, one channel, all fish all day. Of course even once I've moved in, I'll still have to unpack and I'll finally have to invest in some things that I'd ignored when I was living in the duplex (which was always known to be a temporary situation). The next several weeks will be quite expensive and very hectic. Oh Joy.
